I was born in Barcelona and have lived in the UK for many years now. I'm a writer, translator (English-Spanish and vice-versa) and I'm a medical doctor and worked in Forensic Psychiatry many years. I also have a BA and a PhD in American Literature and Film, and a Masters in Criminology. I've always loved books and apart from writing them I review them often. I write a bit of everything, check my books for more information and my about page for links. My blog is bilingual, English and Spanish.

  1. Thank you Olga.

    1. Thanks, Rosie. Creepy and satisfying in the right way!

  2. Oh, this sounds satisfyingly sinister. You know I’m not hugely into horror, but you’ve told me the things I need to know. I believe I’ll enjoy this, for the same reasons as you.
    Her bio write up is cute too.
    Sleepless Monday night and now so close to get up time that I might as well go ahead… Darned noisy place… Have a great Tuesday.

    1. Sorry to hear about the terrible night you’ve had. Let’s hope things get better soon.
      The novel is creepy, scary and atmospheric but not gore or in your face. It is very well done and I agree with you. The author sounds quite fun too. I hope the day is better than the night. Love to Crystal.

  3. I’m intrigued! Thank you for sharing.

    1. Thanks, Sarah. I suspect that, like me, you will enjoy the insights into the valuing and cataloguing the contents of the house and not only the mystery bits. A very enjoyable novel and an unexpected ending.

        1. Perfect!

  4. Antiques, psychological horror, and a great cover! Looks like a winner, Olga.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. Oh yes, and I could see the movie already!

    Looks like a fine read Olga. But you won’t catch me reading any horror. 🙂

    1. Oh, that’s a shame. I love horror. Real life is so much scarier than anything people write. It’s a good way to get ready! This one is one of those insidious ones where the atmosphere is much more important than what you actually see. Have a good Wednesday.

        Thanks Olga. 🙂

  6. Terrific review Olga, not normally a genre I frequent.. but it sounds interesting. I have put in the blogger daily this evening.

    1. Thanks very much, Sally. I like most horror, but this one is more gothic and psychological rather than very graphic. And great for people interested in art and auction houses too. Weird but you ended up in the Spam folder…

  7. A wonderful review, Olga. I also love ghost/horror stories and antiques so this is definitely one for me.

    1. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did, Robbie!

  8. I love a good horror and always have but I like suspensful rather than graphic. So antiques and horror right up my street a Mills and Boon girl I am not…lol…A great review Olga 🙂

    1. Thanks, Carol! Not much of a Mills and Boon girl either! Enjoy!

      1. I will indeed 🙂 Thank you 🙂

        1. 🙂
